ST. JOHN'S, N.L. — The Newfoundland and Labrador government says it will not be changing the name of the Colonial Building in downtown St. John's. The Department of Culture issued a statement today saying a request for feedback from the public showed little support for changing the name. The statement says 69 per cent of those who submitted feedback through an online questionnaire said the name should remain in place. Another 26 per cent of respondents were in favour of a name change, with "Parl
Starting today, Saskatchewan residents over the age of 18 can receive their second booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine as long as they received their third dose at least four months prior. "In August, as our transmission rates are slightly picking up, there was interest in people who are 18 to 49 in getting that second booster," Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Saqib Shahab said. "With people going back to work or school after the summer, it will be in our interest to get the second booster dose.

The Alberta government continues to make its case for a provincial police force, saying it would add hundreds of front-line officers to small detachments. The United Conservative government outlined its blueprint for more police in rural Alberta today. It says 275 front-line police officers would be added to Alberta's 42 smallest detachments. Justice Minister Tyler Shandro says the proposed model would have 65 to 85 community detachments that would have a minimum of 10 police officers and a maxi

NEW DELHI (AP) — The prime minister on Monday pledged to work with vigor to turn poverty-ridden India into a developed country in the next 25 years. Wearing a flowing, cream-colored turban printed with small stripes of orange, white and green, Modi addressed the country from New Delhi’s 17th-century Mughal-era Red Fort to mark the 75th anniversary of India’s independence from British rule.

CALGARY — Conservation advocates and experts are concerned a proposal for a Calgary-to-Banff passenger train is chugging along without addressing some key environmental issues in and around the national park. Liricon Capital Inc., the lead private-sector proponent, is touting it as a hydrogen-powered transportation solution with lower greenhouse gas emissions than driving. The company says it has received support from municipalities and the tourism industry, but the Alberta government has told t
A man in southwestern Ontario said he's sleeping on a couch in his Realtor's basement, hoping tenants will vacate his home ahead of a hearing with the Landlord and Tenant Board. Kelvin Edmondson first rented out his Tillsonburg home in August last year before heading off to work on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. While he was away, he said the tenants neglected to pay rent, including heat and hydro, and substantially damaged his property by housing a number of pets against their initial agreemen
For the first time ever, gene therapy is being used to treat an “ultra-rare disease” in a young Toronto boy. As Caryn Lieberman reports, his family raised more than $3 million to pay for the research and development of a treatment to help save their son.
U.S. homebuilding fell to the lowest level in nearly 1-1/2 years in July, weighed down by higher mortgage rates and prices for construction materials, suggesting the housing market could contract further in the third quarter. The housing market's declining fortunes brought fears of a broader economic recession back into focus. "Industrial production has turned down in every economic recession in history, so the record high this month is not consistent with a downturn."
One Dartmouth, N.S., woman has decided that having water inside a boat doesn't have to be cause for alarm. After about a month of work, Olivia Kendall says she's completed turning an old motorboat into a backyard pool. "It looked really beautiful. It was obviously very old," Kendall said of the boat. "But I thought if it could keep water out, it could probably keep water in." Since purchasing her home in 2017, she said she's been working on renovating the property. She was originally looking int
The railroad said the new deal with the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC), that runs through 2023, will include a 3.5% wage hike in 2022 and 2023. TCRC, which represents about 3,000 locomotive engineers, conductors, train and yard workers across Canada, did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for a comment. Under the arbitration decision, the TCRC will also join a CP Pension Improvement Account, the company said.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Some Florida schools have moved library books and debated changing textbooks in response to a law critics call “Don’t Say Gay” — and some teachers have worried that family pictures on their desks could get them in trouble. As students return from summer break, educators are cautiously adjusting and waiting to see how the new law governing lessons on gender and sexual orientation will be interpreted and enforced. The new law, championed by Florida’s GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis,

Kenney was appearing on his provincewide radio show on CHED and CHQR on Saturday when he was asked via text for his opinion of the Alberta sovereignty act, which has been proposed by United Conservative Party leadership candidate Danielle Smith.

TOKYO (Reuters) -Japan's economy rebounded at a slower-than-expected pace in the second quarter from a COVID-induced slump, data showed on Monday, highlighting uncertainty on whether consumption will grow enough to bolster a much-delayed, fragile recovery. A revival in Japan, like many other economies, has been hobbled by the Ukraine war and surging prices of commodities even as rising consumption propped up growth in April-June. "While domestic demand may continue to expand, falling exports could put a brake on Japan's recovery," he said.
After 58 weeks of noise, needles and violence at the Meagher Park homeless camp, one neighbour says the return to quiet has been a "nice change." Halifax Regional Police quietly cleared out the park last week, nearly a month after telling people they must leave. "Initially all of the neighbours, you know, we really felt for everyone who was experiencing homelessness or was housing insecure," Emily Keast told CBC's Information Morning Halifax on Monday. "And those feelings started to shift when w
A Mountie who was fired after he showed a revealing photo of himself to an assault victim and exchanged sexual texts with her during an investigation fought successfully to get his job back by arguing he was denied a proper hearing. An adjudicator pointed to flaws in the way the case against Const. Andrew Scott Hedderson played out, reinstated him and awarded him back pay, according to a decision recently made public and posted on the RCMP's website. The adjudicator also ordered a second hearing
